    How is my course assessed?

    Summary of assessment

    The assessment of the apprenticeship includes on programme assessments and a synoptic end point assessment.

    a) A mandatory Level 3 Diploma comprising core and optional units. b) The presentation of a portfolio of evidence (which will not form part of the Diploma). This will be assessed by Assessors who are either qualified NVQ Assessors or who are active and trained Assessors for the RICS Associate assessment.

    c) Apprentices without level 2 English and Maths will need to achieve this level prior to taking the end-point assessment.

    3.2 Synoptic end point assessment

    The end point assessment is the RICS Associate assessment. This is a substantial piece of work, typically taking around 3 months to complete and will include: A 3000 word summary of experience A 2500 word case study A record of a minimum of 48 hours of continuing professional development undertaken during the last 12 months An ethics test

    The end point assessment requires apprentices to demonstrate that they have achieved the standards for their chosen pathway. This entails demonstrating achievement of RICS defined competencies to which the apprenticeship standards have been mapped.
